When you use Internet banking to apply for one of our products or services, or sign up for online services, such as eStatements or Bill Payment, we will request information, such as your e-mail address, your account number. This information allows you to perform certain tasks (e.g., correspond with us or review your accounts) and it allows us to provide the information you requested. In these cases, we collect only the information necessary to interact with you. We also gather data to track Web site usage, such as number of hits, pages visited, and the length of user sessions, in order to evaluate the usefulness of our sites. This information is not specific to your personally identifiable financial information.
A cookie is an element of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. A cookie does not retrieve any data from your hard drive, carry computer viruses, or capture your e-mail address. Cookies help Web sites to keep track of user preferences and to recognize return visitors. So, when you return to a Web site you've visited before, your browser gives this data back to the server.

Please use caution when using external financial aggregation or consolidation services. These are companies that collect personal information from a variety of sources and place them on one Web site. They are able to do this by having you give them your identification information and password for each individual Web site, and then use these passwords to access each account. You must provide your permission and information to allow these services to collect this data. We recommend extreme caution when using these services and encourage you not to provide any account information or password to a site that is not familiar to you.
